During Paddle8’s travels, we trekked through wintry Copenhagen and saw some staggering shows. Take a look, and see what the galleries are saying about their artists:
Snow in the Jungle by Tjorg Doublas Beer at Martin Asbaek, Bredgade 23 (24 February – 17 March)
Tjorg Douglas Beer’s works are unpredictable, spontaneous, profoundly original and unique in expression. The idiom is colourful and raw, with both figurative and abstract elements.
Anna Bjerger at David Risley, 65a Bredgade, st. th. (4 February – 17 March)
Anna Bjerger’s fascination is in the construction of an image. She works from photographs. Having found an image it might lie around her studio for some years while she absorbs its essence.
Brigitte Waldach at Galerie Bo Bjergaard, Flæsketorvet 85 A (20 January – 17 March)
Sump by Shane Bradford at V1 Gallery, Flæsketorvet 69 – 71 (10 February – 10 March)
SUMP constitutes a willing manifestation of arguments and actions (ʻhints and allegationsʼ) and concessions to the noble form of what is known as (ʻParklifeʼ) ART. SUMP is Shane Bradfordʼs (UK, born 1971) second exhibition at V1 Gallery. Bradford has recently shown in London and Munich.
Leap of Faith – Children of Suburbia IV by Morten Schelde at Susanne Ottesen, Gothersgade 49 (24 February – 7 April)
Morten Schelde experiments with our perception of reality, spatial understanding and experience. Comforting homes, deep forests, wild wolves, staircases luring us from room to room mix imperceptibly and mesh with cultural references.” Susanne Ottesen
Graham/Mangold at Galleri Nicholai Wallner, NY CARLSBERG VEJ 68 (3 February – 17 March)
Mangold’s drawings are based on lines and curves that Graham translates into metal and glass. Although Mangold is an acknowledged reference for Graham it is nonetheless the first time that these two artists are presented together.
View works from V1 Gallery, David Risley Gallery, Susanne Ottesen Gallery and Martin Asbaek Gallery at Paddle8′s Armory preview opening March 1st at noon.
